A card at last.

Sorry only just managing to post my card. I made it over a few days last week. The image is a download can't remember where from  sorry. I've just noticed I took the photo before glittering all the pink ruffles on her skirt. Looks better glittered. The backing paper where free from a magazine . I used a couple of punches and my spellbinders dies, also one of those lovely zipper flowers.
I have had a relaxing day today my daughter came down from Dundee late last night until 5 o'clock to day. We just chatted and had a little walk in the sunshine. She's in Manchester tonight and tomorrow then back up to Dundee. She's flying off the Vietnam in a couple of weeks until the end of November. She's cyling across Vietnam for 3 weeks and into Thailand.
I have also been decluttering again as Helen keeps telling us we have to much clutter. God help what she will say when she goes into my craft room. She's doesn't  buy many things as she as always been moving about since she left school. Studying to be a Doctor then a Forensic Pathologist.
I did have a clear out of some stuff before my Son came home, But now we don't have any room at all. What with his stuff and all Maddisons toys and clothes we are bulging at the seams. You can't tell I got rid of stuff. Now I just have to work on my Hubby as he's 10 times worse than me.
Don't think I'll be around much at all next week. I am at the hospital Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Have fun crafting Hugs x ChrisB


  1. What a clever girl you must be so proud:0) Good Luck for her bike ride! I love your card Chris it's gorgeous, fab colouring and papers and flowers. I really like the image even though it's not glittered the big eyes are so appealing. Good Luck to you at all your appointments, I hope it all goes smoothly and they look after you, hugs Gay xxx

  2. This card is absolutely beautiful and you are achieving so much despite what's going on. You really are an inspiration.

    Don't forget to get all the family helping de-clutter - I am sure that they'll be very willing to have a clear out - it can be fun too!

    I'll be thinking of you at all your appointments next week - make sure you get pampered on your 'day off' on Tuesday


  3. Such a pretty card and I love the zipper flower. I wouldn't worry too much about de-cluttering - in my book clutter is good although my daughter wouldn't agree and she hasn't even seen my craft room!! Hope all goes well at the hospital and I'm sure they will look after you well.
    Hugs Val
